The White-Striped Kockamamie

Art Glass Sculpture

Created by David Jacobson
This is a hot-sculpted glass bird sitting on a blown glass rock. The bird is decorated with black and white glass canes. The rock is made up of the same black and white canes, arranged in a much more orderly manner to contrast with the loose pattern of the bird. Jacobson strives for the precarious balance of the bird just landing on the rock. In making the bird, the artist heats it, pulls and stretches it, and pinpoint heats it with a small torch so he can manipulate smaller areas with control. This bird does balance on its own, but the bird is permanently attached to the rock for security.
